>> no permits for the use. otherwise there is really no building permits on the subject property. there was a letter of determination for a liquor store and will take up some time to wrap up our collective heads around that and we did find that it could be a lot with certain limitations and one of the limitation we noticed is that they can have -- areas with a full bar, we want to note out that in section 780.3, there are limitation for new bar and restaurants. the guidelines for that, we also have another category called limit restaurants and can serve all sorts of foods that you like. so, that they can still seek an authorization for that. given the special use district we are applying that you cannot locate any new bar or restaurant in a location that was currently or last occupied by a service or by permitted lease in section 722 or a vacant space last occupied by a permit common use under 722. in reading and applying this provision of the planning code look first at subsection one and is this currently or last occupied by basic sales service. i acknowledge the history here i

the planning code and there is a reasonable interpretation that the last legal use certainly if we have a more broad interpretation of that and there is not a serving use, then this code no longer applies to them we would be encouraging to people who change their uses so they can convert to a restaurant use. so that seems like a reasonable interpretation on our part. there is subsection the, when we didn't get in our letter of determination to the board does speak to a vacant space. that is for a period of 18 months. this contemplates a property that has been vacant. you can also already that this the building is vacant and it has no known last legal use because it's never been operated as a retail. you can also apply this provision of the code as well and say that a vacate space should not be converted to a restaurant. the intent of this was to make sure that sales and service uses are not converted and converted into restaurant uses but also those spaces which are vacated which may at one time been a restaurant. if they are vacated for more than 18 months, it can't be converted back to a res

of determination that in the north beach ncd, special use district, if a property once had a neighborhood serving retail use, it may never have a full restaurant use in the future. and the public policy reason i believe for that restriction in the north beach ncd is to obviously prevent restaurants which are high rent paying from displacing neighborhood serving retail uses like laundromats or hardware stores or things like that, so i believe is the public policy reason for that interesting little bit in the code, so again, the only issue we have was the zoning administrator's finding that we find to be factually inaccurate that this building was last occupied by a neighborhood serving retail use, so a little bit on that, the sausage factory was opened to much fanfare on september 7, 1948. this is a historic card announcing its opening, the factory, many of you may know it is on green street street, it's a beautiful 1940's building. please refer to the overhead, thank you for the original announcing the original opening in 1948. >> i can't see it. >> okay. >> i will just -- while i'm waiting for t

that the institute of medicine recommended to us, and one of them as lactation help and support for new mothers that that will now be part of every new health plan available with no copayments, no coinsurance, and i think again it reflects the fact that we are trying to address this issue at the public education level, through our agency for children and families at the cdc through private insurance now covering support and health and certainly working with hospital leaders on what they can do to make sure that new mothers get off to the best possible start and know how beneficial this can be. .. that's a public health departments across your stated matters and i want to make certain that any rejection and the 317 program would not deter the quality and availability of the infrastructure and public health. >> that is certainly our intent, senator. >> and then let me raise -- senator poznan, i would like to accentuate what he said about the workload increase -- the opposite medicare hearing increased 247% from fiscal year 06 to 13. we've had an asian population more medicare reci
